kerry and -- was absolutely right and the president was absolutely right in telling russian president putin that he he better think twice before he considers any kind of military intervention in ukraine. that is not something that can be or should be tolerated, and russia must understand that it cannot be a business as usual. if they make any military moves into ukraine, it's going to cost them a great deal in their relationships with the united states and with our european allies in the european union. it can't be business as usual. which leads me to iran. we are in very delicate negotiations with iran right now. the one thing that everybody agrees the p-5 plus one is that at the end of the day iran must not be allowed to have a nuclear weapon. i have been very critical of the iranian regime through the years and continue to be so. what i. me especially is that while they are negotiating with us, they are continuing to wreak havoc in all different parts of the world. iran remains the leading supporter of terrorism throughout the world. in fact, if we look just next door into syria, a

security team met for two hours last night at the white house. secretary kerry said the white house is not seeking confrontation with russia, but demands that moscow deescalate this crises. >> if you were jlegitimately worried about your citizens, go to the government and talk to them about it. go to the u.n. there's a better way to pursue their interests in ukraine. if russia does not choose to deescalate, then our partners will have absolutely no choice but to join us to continue to expand upon steps we have taken in recent days in order to isolate russia politically, dependenticly and economically. >> ian williams is in kiev. what's the latest there? >> hi, krystal. we saw the first shots fired in this crises outside an air base in crimea during an intense standoff. the air base has been sealed off by armed russian soldiers but ukrainian soldiers who work in the base marched up towards the gate, demanding they be allowed in to get on with their jobs. the russians responded by firing warning shots above their heads and threatening to shoot them in their legs. luckily it was diffus

and finding letters they wrote home during the war. i think the court of public poin opinion is going to kerry the day and reestablish the standards because people in government and the state department and defense department pay attention to what voters know. voters go see movies and read books. as we understand more about the story, i believe the answer simple. there is no passage of time that changes the character of theft. if we can determine a work of art is stolen, it shouldn't matter it took 60 years to find it out. it should be returned. >> host: if you cannot get through on the phone lines, contact us on twitter #booktv is the tag. and from our facebook page is this question: while we all agree stolen art should be returned. how fast back in history should we go? the peacock throne returned to india? also how do you how do you respond to the argument that taking the rosetta stone protected it from local thieves or neglect. >> guest: that is a great question. it is slippery slope when we go back before world war ii. we can be proud of the works of art here have been donated or acquire

. in the west, officials like john kerry declare support for ukraine. what exactly can they do for the country. >> ukraine will need a lot of money. the economy is in shambles, there has been a lot of corruption, it's the corrupt country in europe. the new leadership is estimating they'll need $35 billion over the next two years to sort things out. now, the international monetary fund is putting together some deal, but it will mean economic reforms. it will be painful. it will be painful in the south and east. it had old soviet style industries. that will make it difficult as well. the reforms will be painful. it will mean getting rid of a bloated government, government administration trying to modernize industry and we may see the problems we saw in greece when it tried to modernize to bring itself up to european standards. ukraine has a long way to go. it won't be easy by a long shot. the country is close to bankruptcy. this is the only way they could set a budget. it's on hold, and it may need a lot of money, a lot of money quickly. >> thank you for being with us. >> former president jimmy
. but there was a headline on your website referring to michele troll getsretiring goaded." said that kerry russian intervention would be a mistake. he says any declaration from this of menstruation carries a weight of a feather. better than nothing, better still would be backing these words with the flotilla and the black sea. after the united states was leading europe to counter russian pressure and make up for its punishments until the ukraine is on a firm footing. you agree with that assessment? the weight of this administration carries the weight of the feather? caller: yes, i do. mr. putin will do what he wants to do. he will do that. pretty much anything is going to do what they want to do. china, whoever. not much we can do right now. we are so wounded right now with the current president. he much the rest of the government. especially the senate right now. referringclip you are to is not a c-span clip by the user created clip. we will certainly look into that for you. let's go to ronald waiting in monterey, california. on our line for independents as we continue to talk about the ukraine t
the united states has undergone a review of our relationship." secretary of state john kerry did say yesterday the u.s. would begin an internal review of our relationship and engagement with uganda including assistance programs. meanwhile the "wall street journal" reports other countries are not waiting. norw norway, denmark and the net elands announced they'll withhold further aid to the nation of uganda because of this issue. it was a big deal when hillary clinton gave her human rights day speech in 2011 when she said for the united states, gay rights are human rights and our country will consider gay rights issues when dealing with other countries around the world from this point forward. but that speech was not just a big deal for hillary clinton as a figure in american politics. hillary clinton as a potential political candidate. she was speaking as secretary of state and that was a big deal for u.s. foreign policy. what we're seeing right now, today, is a test of whether or not that was just talk or whether that is the new u.s. foreign policy and what happened in uganda is actu
government. and the great reason for that doubt is because of the things that john kerry said about the boycotts, which is a ridiculous way to treat israeli companies that are providing jobs for palestinians, giving a better way of living than they've ever had, and our response from the united states has been to basically join in the politically correct criticism of that. and that makes no sense at all. the best way to achieve peace in the middle east between israelis and palestinians is for us to butt out of it and let them build some economic partnerships, give people the opportunity to prosper and grow. take better care of their families. but we're never going to settle this in terms of the nutty idea of giving away land for peace. you end up with neither land nor peace and i think most israelis have come to the conclusion that that's a nonstarter for them. >> okay. we'll keep close watch on that. in tonight's show, of course, the big show on our network, i know you got some very important guests coming up. >> we do. we have two retired generals, one retired navy commander, the c
. there is a report that was leaked last week. it's off the record. a pen apparently senator john kerry in a conversation with some of his colleagues of the senate privately admitted that the policy has basically failed. the chemical weapons are not being moved around in any significant way. there's no hope that geneva will produce anything and al qaeda is getting stronger. according to this private report that has been written in "the new york times", he is arguing for arming the moderate opposition and not allowing this process unfold, taking a different shot. and that is from one of the architects of the policy. so i know that there are big challenges here and there are also challenges and rest of not getting involved and just staying on the sidelines. >> i basically agree. but i think to get back to your question that the time for a big intervention that would have essentially toppled the regime is gone. that would've been in the first nine months of the uprising weren't peaceful and democratic. the first two months of the armed conflict before the june party members came in and bef
